### Font of enumerate

Hi all...I am learning Lyx. I have used enumerate environment. I changed the font of text to larger, however the font of enumerate (i.e. number before text) is still remaining as small only. Please let me know, how to change this also?

To be honest, i never came around to learn LyX. It is much to complicated for me to keep track of all the menus.

Here is how it is done in LaTeX. Using a group or with the help of package enumitem.

\documentclass{article}\usepackage{enumitem}\begin{document}{\huge	\begin{enumerate}		\item {elephant}		\item {mouse}	\end{enumerate}}\begin{enumerate}	\item {elephant}	\item {mouse}\end{enumerate}\begin{enumerate}[font=\huge]		\tiny	\item {elephant}	\item {mouse}\end{enumerate}\end{document}

You probably need to use ERT-boxes to get this done in LyX.
Hint: Click on open in writelatex just above the code box to see the result.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
